Dania's John U. Lloyd park has actually been renamed Dr. Von D. Mizell - Eula Johnson State Park

I got an alert on my phone that there's a "boil water" order for the beach from A1A at Sheridan up to Dr. Von D. Mizell - Eula Johnson State Park.  I was like... what??  I guess when they re-named the Hollywood streets they also re-named that park. Who knew John Lloyd was such a bad dude?  Lol, apparently this happened back in 2016.

    Funny story about that is I was telling a friend to surf the south jetty at John U Lloyd on a hard NE windchop as it can get really fun there but he never mentioned the name change to me.  So after reading this I called him and asked him why he didn't tell me the name changed and his answer was. ''it will always be John U Lloyd to me'  Same for me Plastered.  Erasing all of this history is a dangerous thing imo.

    Yeah the new name is a mouth-ful.  Sort of like how I refer to where the Dolphin's play as "Joe Robbie"
